‘Born Again’, is it Possible!
Have you been “Born Again”? For many that is a foreign concept or one that our world has told us only the religious fanatic’s use. But did you know that without being “Born Again” you cannot enter heaven when you leave this life? In the Gospel of John chapter 3 Nicodemus came to Jesus by night for fear of being seen and was told he must be “born again” to enter into heaven and spend eternity with God. Nicodemus was a Jewish religious leader but did not know the God that saved. So he came to this One proclaiming to be the source of anyone’s salvation who will trust in Him. The ‘born again’ truth confused him. He asked how that could be. Could he again be born from the womb? Jesus responded that after the physical birth we must all be spiritually “born again” to restore the relationship and eternal life we lost when we all choose to sin. Check out John 3 for yourself.
John 3:3 “Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
If you have been ‘Born Again’, here is the plan Jesus has for you|||
Col 3:1-3 “If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, and not on things on this earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.”
II Cor 5:17 “Therefore if any man be in Christ; he is a new creature; old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
If you are not sure whether you have been ‘Born Again’ today is a great time to sit down with a good book. You may want to start in the Gospel of John and pay particular attention to the 3rd and 14th chapters!!!
John 3:3 “For truly I say unto you, except a man be ‘Born Again’, he cannot see the Kingdom of God.”
John 14:6 “And Jesus said unto them, I am the way, the truth and the life, no one comes unto the Father, but by Me.”
So, if you were to die today, where would you spend eternity? You do not have to hope or not be sure of your eternal destiny. Listen to God’s offer…..
Hebrews 9:27 “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:”
1 John 5:11-13 “And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that you may know that ye have eternal life, and that you may believe on the name of the Son of God.”
Is the fact that you must be ‘born again’ something your friends and some family members need to hear before it is to late? Jesus said;
Mat 4:19 “follow Me and I will make you fishers of men.”
